Summary

Toby

Is it wrong to be attracted to the groom in a wedding? Or, I thought he was the groom! No, this guy is open and single and...into me? Is he into me?

He'd be the first for quite some time. 

I have to admit, seeing all these weddings come and go can be a bit much when you go home all by yourself. But is it ethical to date a client's brother?

Hunter

He's such a snob, but I guess he's no worse than my sister. I'm always the one shoved around by everyone - but even him?

At least he understands when it's a case of mistaken identity. I certainly never said I was marrying my sister. That would be one screwed up situation, and besides, I'm not much for women anyway. 

Still, I've never met quite anyone like him. He's seen so much love, but he doesn't have any for himself. I wouldn't mind changing that. 

This mistaken identity book is steaming hot and ready for your eager ears. With no cheating and a HEA, you won't want to put this one down. Just make sure you are an adult, as this one is spicy!

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Randi Johnson is one of the top 3 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. And really, his SEXY VOICE is something you DON'T want to miss!!
I'm just not yet finish with the book, just over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Such a sweet, steamy, great story. Great narration

I enjoyed the way that Randi Johnson brought these characters to life in this story.

I love this book. It is so light-hearted and sweet and it just pulled me along with it. It pulled me through the full range of emotions and made me laugh out loud several times. I loved the initial misunderstanding, it was so well written. The characters are so good and I loved watching their interactions and the way they dealt with everything that went on around them. The steam is great. I really loved the way it ended and it was what I was secretly hoping for all the way through. I could have happily spent a lot more time with these great characters.

I Loved This Romance Comedy!

I really fell in love with this romantic comedy written by J. P. Oliver. It took me by surprise in the beginning when the wedding planner 1st met the couple, how the groom was overly flirtatious towards him.

As the story unfolds, you will discover thereal story behind it all and when I was able to put it together, I just started laughing.

The bride is going to have everyone just upped at arms. Her attitude will be out of control. And, behind the scenes there will be a blossoming relationship.

The ending captured my heart as I'm sure it will yours.
Randi Johnson is one of my favorite male narrators and of course he did a wonderful job with the characters in this book.

I definitely recommend "The Bride's Brother" to others. It's worth every 5-stars!!!

Realistic gay romance

I enjoyed this story I thought it had a few funny spots also with some highly emotional situations as well. Overall I was hooked into the story because I had to see how the relationship was going to grow and change over time. The story was told in duel POV which I like but in this particular story was also why mark down performance one star. With the one narrator I enjoyed the voice but sometimes found it hard to tell who POV it was from because the voice was all the same. An easy listen for sure.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed this book, both the storyline and the narration. The book is well written and fairly low angst which I like. The balance of scenes between main characters and the rest of the story is usually just right too. There is a longer chapter where Hunter internalises about his life to date, and while it throws light on why Hunter behaves as he does, it is too much tell and not enough action for me.

The narration by Randi Johnson is, for the most part, excellent. The story is read rather than acted and I had no problem with this except in one scene where the characters are arguing and I had a job working out who said what! Randi's voice is very clear and his rendition is lively and perfectly pitched for a person with some hearing impairment. I look forward to listening to more of his work.

Worth the wait

I loved this book. It drove me crazy at times with all the angst but it was worth it in the end. And what an ending! I honestly didn't see it coming.
Narrator Randi Johnson does a fabulous job.

A wedding of a lifetime.

J P Oliver wrote an interesting story that is so different from all other books I have read. The Bride's Brother was a great book with twists and turns that kept me, the reader, on my toes and focused on what was happening. When you thought you understood where the characters stood, you later learned it was not as originally portrayed.
Toby, the bride's brother was a good man who took his job as a wedding planner seriously. His partner in business, Hal, was a young, energetic young woman who knew when to take chances that helped the newly formed business that Toby started.
Toby was a guy who had morals, and even though he never met his soul mate, he would never sell himself out morally or physically (physical needs).
In comes this very affluent and rich couple who want their wedding planned. Julia and Hunter were an interesting pair in Toby's eyes but his opinion was irrelevant and he kept that to himself. It ends up Hunter began making advances on Toby, who liked what he was looking at but was angry that this jerk was flirting with him while making wedding plans with his fiancee. Or so Toby thought....was Hunter The groom or was David?

The story was really good. I enjoyed this book tremendously. I found a small portion confusing to understand, but due to the flow of the storyline and the rapid nature of the journey the small things were minor and easy to overlook. One example is if you do extensive research on someone, I know you can have a "brain fog" and forget some minor things but it normally it comes back to you quick enough if you truly did research a subject.

The Epilogue was the best I have read to date. This book keeps you on your toes right up to the very end. I highly recommend this book for it is enjoyable, keeps your interest throughout and had very hot sexual scenes that were sizzling with heat and passion.

Narration: The narrator was good but I felt his narration, at times, did not flow with the storyline. The words were spoken but not said in the manner of what the story was telling the reader.

I enjoyed it.

This is my first book by J.P. Oliver but I've listened to a few more narrated by Randi Johnson. Randi Johnson's narration continues to improve but I still think he's a bit overly emphatic with his voice at times. I have several other books in my queue that he's narrated and I suspect that he will continue to improve.

The story was good, some mistaken identity, some coming out and a surprise twist at the end. There were also several very hot, sexy scenes. Overall an enjoyable experience.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

Cute story

This is another great story by J.P. Oliver with well-developed characters. Toby is a wedding planner and assumed that Hunter the brother of the bride is the groom. I loved the miss understanding which was a case of mistaken identity. I felt the chemistry between Toby and Hunter. The narration was very well done

A perfectly cute story of errors and love.

Cute! Easy to read, not too much angst, it makes for a perfect day-off afternoon read! The only thing I really hated was the annoying sister!
Also Randi Johnson is a new to me narrator, but I really loved his voice and style, and I will make sure to check more of his titles.

Cute story premise

I liked the cute story premise that the wedding planner assumed the brother of the bride was the fiancé. It did not go to long in my opinion before it was cleared up. I like that Toby and Hunter were getting to know each other and falling for each other in the midst of all the drama that was Julia the Bridezilla of the story. The guys each have their own hang ups that seem to be addressed by the end of the story and give you a HFN ending. I enjoyed the narration.

Low angst listen

This one had an interesting twist, The start is possibly a little bit drawn out and a touch confusing with the mistaken identity portion I'm not sure if the dialogue was said aloud or it was supposed to be an inner thought thing but once you're past the mistaken identity thing it moves along nicely. It's a sweet story with a HEA, Johnson does a good job with the narration and has a pleasant voice to listen to.
